Their Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Nino Franco NV Rustico Brut has been awarded number 1 position on the 2019 “The Enthusiast 100” ranking. The ranking features the best wines on the planet according to the US magazine “Wine Enthusiast”, whose Italian editor is Kerin O’Keefe.
Nino Franco winery is one of the most historic wineries in the area, as well as the recognition of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites for the vineyard hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.
“The recognition is for the company and the territory, and we are very pleased. This reward is for the work we have been doing for many years in the U.S., first Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, then Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, and we now represent almost 12% of all exports to the US. More than anything else, it is a message to those who are still looking down their noses at this simple, but extraordinary Italian wine”
– Primo Franco, winemaker/owner of Nino Franco Winery
